    Account value description in multi language
    Account value description in multi language


    We have a requirement for a global project that the value set values (Descriptions) we have in "English" should be in multi language depending upon the user location. 

    For example, during configuration we will update all the description in "English" for value set values, however when a china user logins, he / she should be able to see the value description in Mandarian language. Similarly for other users across the globe.

    Please suggest if this is achievable in oracle cloud ERP.

    Thanks !

      For other languages to be installed in your environment, you need to open an SR to make the request. There is a lead time for this to happen so please ensure you plan for it. Once the required languages are installed, you can have descriptions in the installed languages for the value set values e.g. COA values. The easiest way to update description for many values is to use FBDI Import Segment Values and Hierarchies. The template has columns for description in supported languages. Be careful that you don't inadvertently update something else such as other attributes.

      To update description for a value manually, use Manage Value Set in FSM. Search for the value and then click Translation Editor to enter description for other languages. This will only work for the languages installed.
